Walk in the park

Crazy lamp post base in Villa Garibaldi
I just realized my last eight posts were all about food and places to get it. I've been on a diet, so I'm obsessed, I guess you could say. So today I took a walk in the park. A guided tour of the Villa Garibaldi. The cast iron fence that surrounds it and the lamp posts inside it were made at the Florio foundry, Fonderia Orotea, near the port of Palermo, just a few blocks away. I loved this crazy combination of horse hoof surmounted by some strange animal. When I asked the guide what animal it was, she looked at it hard and decided it was a lion. So a lion's head mounted on a horse 's hind leg. Go figure.
